Flag Presentation
   
Friday, September 12, 2014 
-
We were honored yesterday on the anniversary of the events of 9-11 to have been the recipient of a special honor. SPC Michael Horn of the Kentucky Army National Guard, member of the 149th VCC stationed at Camp Phoenix Kabul, Afghanistan, presented the Department with a flag that was flown at the base in Afghanistan on September 11, 2013, and dedicated to Montgomery County Fire/EMS as a statement of gratitude for services performed on behalf of the citizens of Montgomery County. To say we were humbled would be an understatement and our hearts will always be with those putting themselves in harm's way while protecting this great country.

Local Family Saved by Smoke Detectors
   
Friday, March 28, 2014 
-


It is 2am in the morning and the family is sleeping snuggly in their beds, unaware of the soon to be dangers that awaited them.  This story could have ended in tragedy but fortunately these homeowners had taken the proper steps beforehand.  On March 26 at 2am one of our local families was awakened to the sound of smoke detectors blaring throughout the home.  When they arose from their beds to their surprise the home was on fire.  Luckily for them they were able to get out of the home quickly and call for help.  The home was severely damaged but the family was alive and well. 

Here is the back side of the story.  Two years ago our crews canvassed the very neighborhood where this home was located asking if anyone needed smoke detectors and then installing them in the homes that were in need.  This very home had detectors installed by our crews and luckily for them on this night they did the job that they were intended to do and we could not be more grateful.  When you hear the words “smoke detectors save lives”, understand that this is not a slogan to sell an item, it is actually the truth.  Without those detectors blaring in the night one of our local families may not have made it out of that home and that is sadness that none of us ever wants to go through. 

Please install detectors where needed and maintain them yearly with fresh batteries.  You are twice as likely to die in a home without them and even more likely in homes that have detectors that are not working.  Test your smoke alarms monthly and know that your small amount of effort will provide a great amount of safety for you and your family.  If you don’t believe us, ask the owner of the home above how good smoke detectors are. Montgomery County Fire Department provided him with the smoke detectors for this home but the homeowner was responsible enough to maintain them in good working order.
